I don't know if I'm in the right section but here goes.

I found a stitch that I have never heard of before. I have been knitting for about 35 years now and I have never come across this one before. Tw2. Can anybody help me?

I googled this abbreviation and found this explanation:
TW2 - Twist Two. Knit second st on left-hand needle, knit first st on left-hand needle, slip both sts from needle together.

Hope that helps.

I had to specify knitting term - TW2.

I have a sweater just off the needles (about 1 1/2 years now) which called for the TW2 stitch in the ribbing. It's a beautiful change and I love it...............perhaps will even sew the pieces together and knit the collar and button panels now, too....

Thanks for sending that link. I'll be filing that one for sure, it has every abbreviation a knitter would need. Thanks again

I am knitting a scarf & hat for my son at the moment & part of the pattern has TW2 in the abbreviations, which I also had never come across before in my fifty years of knitting. It is exactly as described - knit the second stitch in on your left hand needle without slipping off, then knit the first stitch. Slip both off together.
